Feeling Sora (and Virginia Rail)

The weather forecast for this morning was rain. Thank you for being wrong. Slightly cloudy, but the sun was peaking out and the boardwalk at Spring Valley Wildlife Area was free of other birders. Yesterday's shoots were all under exposed, so today I consciously lowered my shutter speed. The result - more out of focus shots, but less work in Lightroom on the good images.

Lunch was a bit of a bust at Hills and Dales Park, but did get the 'obligatory' Robin photograph. For some great 'obligatory' robin photographs - visit fellow photographer Jeremy Mudd's Flickr page.
